STRAFE retro gaming first person shooter fps quake kickstarter (1)

Kickstarter- STRAFE Looks to Return First Person Shooters to the Mid 90’s, and You Are Going to Love It

Remember the first time you fired up Space Hulk on 3DO, Saturn or Playstation?  Remember how the sprite based enemies just piled up in the level?  It was unfortunate that they disappear as you explore but the idea was there, as did the blood stains on the walls.  STRAFE looks to build on that level of interaction adding persistent elements to the game levels.  Currently on Kickstarter looking for funding, STRAFE is going to pull at the nostalgia strings of gamers that miss the days of Quake II and Half-Life.


Review: Flip Off Fun With Midnight Magic on Atari 2600

Playboy had one, KISS had one and even the Six Million Dollar Man had one… it’s not what you’re thinking, they all had their names in big flashing bright lights and cool colours on the back boards of thousands and thousands of pinball machines all over the world.

The entertainment craze of the 1970s, pinball halls and pinball machines, became the socially cool, fun and addictive way to waste all your coins, thanks largely to the inclusion of microprocessors. This new technology led to a pinball gaming boom as they featured improved game play, improved sounds and bumpers that would make your pinball rack up the points.

Bandit Gaming: Shadow of the Colossus for Atari 2600 Work in Progress

We have covered wild works in progress and the like for various consoles since we started RGM.  One of the more interesting ones was Mario 64 getting ported to the Atari 2600, of all consoles.  Interestingly, we have found an even wilder work in progress title, Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus which is currently a Work in Progress (WiP) for the Atari 2600.  My question is, why are all of these titles, no matter how bad they will probably be due to limited hardware, getting released for the Atari 2600?  Anyhow, read on for pics and more information on Shadow of the Colossus on the Atari 2600 as it currently stands.

It feels like yesterday Y2k bugs were going to shut down and cripple the entire world as we knew it but it never happened and yet a short fast forward ahead and we find ourselves in the year 2030 and the life  and pastimes that we once knew and loved have been completely futurised…

Megamania Activision Atari 2600 retrogaming retro game classic shooter (4)

Review: Megamania for Atari 2600

If I ever wondered why I love retro and retro video gaming, it’s when you pick up a game and read things like this “If you think Megamania is just another space game, you’re dreaming.  And that dream will become a nightmare.  A space nightmare.  So, prepare yourself for one of the most unreal experiences you’ll ever encounter.”

Now, come on tell me after reading that description, that it’s not retro cool. And it gets a little more retro cool, which i will touch on a bit further down. 

Last Ninja 2 Konix Multisystem Commodore 64 version retro retrogaming (2)

Prototype: Last Ninja 2 for the Konix Multisystem Found, Preservation Status Poor

The Konix Multisystem was quite a beast, had it been released, that could have at least been an interesting purchase for gamers.  The biggest draw of this vaporware platform is that it would contain nearly every conceivable accessory that you could think of inside and ready for use.  Yeah, not a big thing to hitch your publicity wagon to but it was what Konix was going for.  The stills we saw in gaming magazines back in the day were not impressive and the press generally flogged the Konix Multisystem for this.  A few years ago Attack of the Mutant Camels by Jeff Minter was found, and more recently a version of Last Ninja 2 was discovered.

Review: Switchblade for the CPC Gaming Computer

For 10,000 years he slept.  His mind feeding on the nightmares of the weak. Now he has awakened, as the night bled crimson the fireblade shattered and its power died.  Then the slaughter began.  They never thought he would return.  Now HAVOK reigns the under city. I am Hiro, the last of the bladeknights, I must rebuild the fireblade and bring the dawn…
